  2. Unreadable Mail

    I can´t read the screen with it broken up into four columns. I open an inbox message and the information is so small it is unreadable. How to get a separate screen for messages?

  5. Remove people favorites in Mail section

    Under notifications users can select Favorite people for getting new e-mail notifications. Is there a way not to show people favorites in the mail favorites and just under people favorites. Thanks

  9. Search email domain when looking autocompleting recipient

    When I'm looking to send an email to someone I've received and/or sent email to before, I'd expect to be able to type part of the domain and be shown that email address. I currently get no results, have to search my mailbox for that partial term, click on the email, then write the full address in (autocomplete pops up when i start typing from the beginning, but would be better to also support the domain)

  11. Editing the To line

    First off, I find the entire Feedback giving experience incredibly dismissive. I'm not even able to share snips or screenshots.

    I want to be able to edit to 'To' line recipient when copying an address from another source. It pastes with 'mailto:' before the actual domain, and I'm unable to edit without deleting the entire recipient.

    I'm struck at how different Outlook.com functions to Outlook on 365. Please trade notes internally.

  12. Collapse email by sender

    Collapse mail by sender - for review and cleanup of mail. Allow collapse (like in PC version) so can quickly delete a large group of email

  14. The undeliverable email warning is inadequate

    As stated, it appears that only the person(s) with an "undeliverable" address did not receive the message, but that other recipients did. The message should first state the outcome: 'The "Test" message has not been sent to any recipients'
    Then the reason for the problem, "Undeliverable because gwndolyn wasn't found at visualworkplace.com"
    Then "How to Fix."

  16. Items in wrong folder marked as read.

    As a former software tester, I am reporting this as a repeatable and reproducible bug!

    I’m accessing Outlook web mail on Chrome on a Windows 10 desktop.

    Here’s a scenario. I have a folder (“Folder A”) of mail items selected in the folder list. The items appear on the right. Because I have been travelling, many, but not all, are marked as Unread.

    I selected one unread item in folder A and used the top menu bar Move function to move it to Folder B. item B now shows one Unread item in the Folder list. I don’t need to…

  17. This issue is making me upset

    When switching from Unread to Read, I want that state to stay static, not changed, when I switch between tabs (Focused, Promotions, Social, Newsletters, Other) Right now, I am always toggling that to "Unread"

  18. Better User experience

    There has to be a way to cancel search.
    There also has to be an easier way to go back to the Inbox after i open an email. Generally, Back button is on the left top side. In Outlook's case it is on the right top, which is not very intuitive. See Gmail for an example.

  20. About colours

    Good morning,
    This is Susana Echeverria. I thank you for your great service by letting me use your mail. I would like to help you with an observation which may make you application better, in my opinion. I suggest that you change the red colour of the message of error when the user makes a mistake on his/her e-mail address and/or password; because, it looks really old fashion. I am a teacher and when I see the red message that your programme sends me, I feel being reprimanded, amd makes me remember some bad experiences. Therefore, I will love to…
